The thugs in London...
The Daily Mail has some first-hand observations of the thuggery at the London rallies.
Between High Street Kensington tube station and the embassy were numerous folk from the pro-Hamas rally. They shouted and screamed abuse at anyone they perceived as headed towards the Israel solidarity rally, including some elderly Jews.
'When I arrived at the rally area and was giving an interview to a television crew, two of the pro-Hamas bunch jumped in my way and screamed at me.
'I then joined the Israel Solidarity Rally. The hatred from the pro-Hamas side was intense. They hurled the most wicked abuse imaginable, and threw objects. Some of their number tried to break through the barrier.
'Thankfully the police had undertaken searches because some of the Hamas supporters had arrived at their demonstration with bricks and knives. One of their lot came over and spat at a young Jewish boy who had been minding his own business.
'Then some of them drove past our rally shouting abusive remarks and waving pro-terrorist flags. Meanwhile, the Israel rally stayed calm and dignified. We sang about peace, and also sang the Israeli and English national anthems.
